Pan Seared Lemon Tarragon Cod- Lean and Green Recipe

The delicious flavor and aroma of tarragon with lemon on cod is a classic favorite.  In this Lean and Green recipe, I combine the pan searing technique with cod pieces and coat in Stacey Hawkins Rockin’ Ranch seasoning for a delicious kick with almost no work.  With lemon, garlic and tarragon as the main flavors in the ranch seasoning, it’s a perfect pairing!

Serve this with your favorite green side dish such as steamed broccoli or brussels sprouts!  A Medifast recipe that conforms with Take Shape for Life recipes and both sets of Lean and Green Meal guidelines.  7 ounces of cod is one lean portion and just under 1 healthy fat portion.  Enjoy!

4 tsp     Stacey Hawkins Luscious Lemon Oil

1 3/4 lbs     fresh cod fillets

1 T          Stacey Hawkins Rockin’ Ranch Seasoning


Add oil to a large frying pan and heat over medium high heat.  While oil is cooking, cut cod into 2″ chunks. When oil is hot, add fish to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, browning slightly.  Fish will take approximately 6-8 minutes to be thoroughly cooked.  When opaque and flaky, it is done.  Serve immediately.  Serves 4
